Wild Arugula (Diplotaxis tenuifolia) is an ancient herb, native to the Mediterranean, Northern regions Africa and Asia has been cultivated for 1000s of years. The heirloom variety was introduced during 17th century in United States through Italian travelers.

Wild arugula grows freely across the Italian countryside, and many Italians fondly remember gathering the pungent leaves from wild plants growing in fields during the summer.

Arugula is one of the easier herbs to grow both indoors and out, quick to maturity and grown very similar to headless leafy lettuces. Arugula can be started indoors 4-6 weeks earlier for outdoor transplanting but, unlike some tender culinary herbs, may also be sown directly after the final spring frost.
